What is the Tree of Whispers in Diablo 4?

The Tree of Whispers is an endgame vendor involved in the Whispers of the Dead bounty system. Whispers of the Dead gives players a set of continuous tasks and objectives once they have completed the campaign and reached the endgame in Diablo 4.

These objectives, referred to as ‘Whispers’, appear as various objectives in various locations in a random subregion on the map. Completing tasks will grant you a set amount of Grim Favors, depending on the type of objective.

There is a limited time to complete the objectives before a new set of Whispers of the Dead quests will become available in another subregion.
